  • Hard News: Five further thoughts,

    While NZers can be as racist and unwelcoming as you guys say, the reason I never liked Kim is he's a shifty bastard who has previous convictions

    Ignore what they say, watch what they do.

  • Hard News: Five further thoughts, in reply to Dylan Reeve,

    I think the best counter to the "It's just common sense" theory is the "we've tried that and it doesn't work" argument

    Deregulation of power market - higher prices
    Trickle down theory - proven not true
    Other examples are available but I'd lead with the simple and empirical

    I like your theory though

  • Hard News: The sole party of government,

    I haven't seen a mention of it but some people I spoke to mentioned the Capital Gains Tax proposal as a reason to not vote Labour

  • Speaker: The End of Trust, in reply to phplad,

    You appear to have escaped from either the Stuff or Kiwiblog's comments section with your line of reasoning - please resubmit, try accentuating logic this time

  • Hard News: 2014: The Meth Election,

    "Oh Mr Roberts, I wish there was a way I could vote for you a hundred times!"
    "Matter of fact, ma'am, there is"

    No-one's polled me and as far as I'm concerned there is one opinion poll and it happens every 4 years

  • Up Front: Oh, God,

    There is no god.

    Religion is on a par with homeopathy, astrology and wearing crocs.

    You nutters can believe this garbage if you want but excuse me if I laugh at it and call it garbage and resist your attempts to indoctrinate children in your fantasy.

    I don't expect religious people to admit that their lives are a lie but without proof they can all bog off

  • Up Front: Oh, God,

    I'm fed up with being even-handed and fair to these lying kiddiefiddlers.

    How about we tackle this evil where it flourishes? How about we lift the taxable exemption for all churches and charge them as if they were at the full corporate rate?

    They are in the business of "souls" which don't exist so how about we make these fuckers pay for their delusions?

    Civilisation will dump the idea of gods sooner than some people realise and in the corporeal world we will be left with some buildings on some nice real estate that could be turned into something useful.
    A childcare centre or playground would make more sense - how about instead of talking to your invisible friend in the sky which doesn't exist you do some good on the face of this earth?
